The Faceless Are Screwed

Posted by Tristan

Notorious for being unreliable, this time, The Faceless may well have taken the biscuit. Previously cancelling an entire Australian tour support slot with The Black Dahlia Murder, without letting fans know The Faceless screwed up. Now they’ve done it again and I think this is it.

Biters Nod To The Past In The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Very much a mentality that could be applied to more than a few bands but rather than put it down to complacency, some are just brilliant at what they do. Following on from their debut record, Electric Blood, Biters have seen their popularity simply soar. Having had spots on prestigious tours the world over, the Atlantan bunch return for their second helping of Rock ‘n’ Roll that is The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be.

Why Costin Chioreanu Is Carach Angren’s Secret Weapon

Before the release of their 2015 effort This Is No Fairytale, I couldn’t have cared less for the fast growing Dutch Symphonic Black Metal band. Having heard their name thrown around in differing circles, people were indeed talking. Convenient for my discovering of them as they released a brand new lyric video for “There’s No Place Like Home“. However it wasn’t just any old lyric video, created by renown artist Costin Chioreanu, the video was more than just a lyric video. Bringing this morbid tale to life entirely and it had me absolutely hooked.

No doubt many of you will have heard the sad news that singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, Chris Cornell passed away sadly yesterday. At the age of 52 it’s a huge surprise and shock to the Metal community so we thought the least we could do was remind everyone of just how influential a man he was.

Mainstays in the Progressive category, Pain of Salvation have been somewhat absent from the Prog arena for a while, however 2017 has broken their temporary silence with the release of their brand new album In The Passing Light of Day. As with almost Pain of Salvation records, there lies a concept. Particularly close to home, the new album aims to convey the emotions that are allied with the idea of acceptance of your own mortality.

John Frum’s A Stirring In The Noos – Theoretical Death Metal
16th May 2017, 14:04
Posted by Tristan

For those thinking that Death Metal is consistent with the stereotype of the hulking Metalhead who says “Brutal” after every syllable, wears baggy camo pants and drinks until he passes out, this is for you. Welcome John Frum, with a combined resume the band consist of members from The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Faceless and John Zorn to name a few. Like Gorguts, progenitors of the theoretical movement making Death Metal some of the most complex music to mould your cranium around, John Frum don’t only exhibit their technical capability but bring a unique, psychedelic element of the spiritual into the equation, a stirring in the noos if you will.

The Night Flight Orchestra – The Most Eighties Band Yet?

Few eras will ever truly match the creative magnitude that was seen in the eighties. The golden days of creative enlightenment, coming off the back of the seventies and building a sound altogether entirely new and different itself. Not lending itself only to music however, all throughout the creative world there were milestones being made in the art of self expression. Though a fledgeling genre, through the nurture of the eighties, Sci-Fi for example was just one of the many other sectors that was in bloom. In a time before the idea of image often transcended the actual composition of a song itself, before the advent of MTV music used to be simple. Wanting to echo these traits the Swedish Super power, made up of members of Soilwork, Arch Enemy among others join us as we take a look into the eighties with an exclusive video.
